A mini enlightenment

I had a mini enlightenment today.

I checked my morning run on Strava.

It reminded me that I haven’t “kudos”-ed anyone on Freeletics recently.

/And that I should go do that now./

Here’s the mini enlightenment. I stopped. And I thought, “You know what? Just because I felt like doing that… Doesn’t mean I have to.”

Sounds so simple, but so hard to do in life.

For example, we hardly – if ever – notice how fast we jump from the trigger of a new Slack message to feeling like I have to engage in this potentially-hour-long conversation now, to actually doing so and start replying.

All without being able to stop and think, “You know what? Just because I felt like doing that… Doesn’t mean I have to.”
